Just do not let your cameras go outside your network. Check this out.

So is the IPC-T5442T-ZE not NDAA compliant? If not, am I breaking any laws ordering it?

My Camera comes tomorrow is it poe only (need to get poe switch still) or can you power inject as well?

Want to be able to test and start figuring out as I order up a poe switch.

OK, so I got my first camera and I started to get things set up. Changing the framerate etc.

I assume it will be best to use that service tool that flips the camera from day to night? Or is it not necessary if the camera is flipping to black/white when in the dark?

Are there any recommended settings to start, i frame, vbr/cbr, quality etc?

I set up a test with the camera and things are working, but the recorded footage is grainy. As I am so green to this, I am curious where to starts with some of this.

There is a lot of help in the forums below. I leave my cameras in full color day and night because i have a lot of light around my place.

How does one edit shutter speed in the camera? Also, what do people prefer, vbr or cbr?

reading the wiki, trying to determine system needs for blueiris.

I have an i5-2400, is this adequate? It says it has quicksync support

Above, I recommended Skylake (6xxx series) and newer because this was the first generation to include H.265 acceleration hardware. You can also get good performance out of older models as far back as the Sandy Bridge architecture (2xxx series, such as i7-2600) which is the first to support H.264 hardware acceleration with Quick Sync. However newer CPUs are more energy-efficient and typically offer better single-threaded performance which can help if you want to use 4K cameras at high frame rates.

This could help you with which computer to get.

It depends on the cam. What cam do you have? If it is a Dahua, you use the web GUI and go to the Settings/Conditions/Exposure tab.

As I am not worried about space, I use CBR.

It will depend on how much video through put you have. That is based on the number of cams, their MP size, their FPS and their bit rates.

Try out your PC and see if it works. Can't hurt. You can always replace it. Personally, I doubt it will be good enough for more than a couple of cams.

camera 1 installed. I am off and running on my journey now.

Only question is, did I F up putting the camera slightly farther back. I asked the wife where she preferred it and she said closer to the house. Now I am curious if I will have issues with IR flair. I guess I will know tonight.

Next up, more cameras and blue iris. Just to get rolling I fired up a shinobi docker container, but after hearing about blue iris and its insane capabilities I am sold to not wait any longer.
